Sofia Zuloaga – Aon

The legal department might have run like clockwork when, at just 32, Sofia Zuloaga joined the South American arm of professional services giant Aon, the first woman to manage the legal functions of a subregion that includes Argentina, Chile and Peru. But Zuloaga wanted the department to be about more than just cold efficiency. For […]

Sofia Almeida Montero – QBE Seguros Colonial S.A.

In a way, Sofia Almeida Montero’s career started with a lie—however white and well-intentioned. When she was 18, Almeida arrived at what would be her “alma mater” to take what she thought was a pre-university political science test. After notching one of the highest scores in her class, Almeida soon discovered she’d instead been enrolled […]

Ricardo Muza —Pfizer Andean Region

It’s a long stretch from his office in Santiago, Chile, to Quito, Ecuador–over 2,350 miles to the north.

Carlos Landazabal Angeli – General Electric

The trademark of a successful corporate lawyer? It’s not just legal and business savvy, answers Carlos Landazabal Angeli, who, since November 2012, has served as General Electric’s legal leader for South America’s Andean region, as well as Central America and the Caribbean. Anticipation is just as important, the soft-spoken general counsel tells Vanguard from his […]

Ricardo Sarmiento – Estrella International Energy Services

One thing you learn to love about the land is how it never changes. Or anyway it won’t change much in the lifecycle of a drilling rig and its human operators. Here, in the energy industry, the land is as close to a constant as it gets. But people—whether individually or as part of a […]
